Artist Statement -

My documentary photographic work is primarily concerned with contemporary social, cultural and political matters relating to Southeast Asia and how this intersects with my own personal history and experiences. In 1989, in China as part of a student exchange program with Beijing Teacher’s College, I documented the Tian An Men Square uprising. In 1992-1993, I retraced my steps as a refugee in Cambodia. In 1994, an Arts International/National Endowment for the Arts grant supported a second Cambodia project in landmines. And in 1995-1997, I returned to Southeast Asia to document various aspects of Vietnamese, Cambodian and Laotian social, economic, and cultural recovery from the effects of war.
